Issue 2 of Case Focus journal published

case focus

The Case Centre announces publication of the second edition of Case Focus.

Case Focus is central to The Case Centre’s commitment to supporting new voices in case writing, broadening the scope and diversity of cases, and reflecting the cultural diversity, concerns, and career aspirations of faculty in the MEA region and their students.

It is a mark of the journal’s success that submissions for Issue 2 have more than doubled. As a result, this edition has been expanded to include nine cases. This increase is instrumental in helping achieve Case Focus‘ goal of giving a platform to as wide a range of voices as possible.

We give a big thanks to all our contributors, reviewers and readers for their efforts in creating and building on the successful launch by producing such a strong and interesting second edition.
